    Fear of the unknown, fear of the dark, fear of the enemy, fear of death since the beginnings of menkind have been both a driving force of humanity as well as a stumbling block. It is an instinctive force that has made humanity join up in communities in search of safety and shelter from a danger lurking in the darkness, however the finality of things is always inevitable. How does one overcome fear of their own fatality?


    Shot between years 2016-2022 in Ireland and Latvia with both filmmakers present.
